I really enjoyed the fried oysters and on the half shell. The oysters are really fresh. The often shuck them within the customers view. I had a great meal. They have a generous happy hour. Nice hangout spot. Very festive. It's located near hotels and other restaurants. There's even a riverboat close by.

Oysters were delicious, service left much to be desired. Was seated and told out server Michael would be there shortly....30 minutes later had to go ask someone to take our drink orders. Server came to deliver and then someone in management took our food order--not sure what was going on. Total time there almost two and a half hours--dont go... More

Food options a unbelievable. We started with the lump crab cake, which was fresh and really tasty. The chargrilled oysters were to die for. I will go back just for the oysters.

Food was very good. Grilled oysters were my faces for appetizers. Others in pur group enjoyed raw oysters on the half shell. We dined on shrimp and two had a seafood platter. Service was good. Parking was a problem because the street in front was blocked off for an event.

This chain of restaurants is popular in Alabama but I found the quality of the food to be very average. We had lunch in one location and apps in another location. I am glad I am not an oyster eater after watching 2 staff members shucking them for over an hour.

Great food, good prices or good food great prices would have made this a 5 star. Menu is a bit limited but good service outdoor seating and being stuffed afterwards made this a great meal.

Had dinner here, as there was just two of us, we were seated in the back room, which was disappointing as the bar area was lively, but you had to be a party of four. It was not full by any means, but that is their policy. The food was good though.

My wife and I were recently in Montgomery attending a conference. I'd looked around and saw that there was a Wentzell's near our hotel. Great news, since I've been to Wentzell's in Mobile and Fairhope and could not say enough good about them. Unfortunately, this was not the case in Montgomery. I love oysters!
